February 6, 1994

At mass at the Newman Center. A couple of rows in front of me a woman suddenly collapses and goes into a seizure. Eventually she was carried out by the people around her. In an odd occurence, I believe that day the Gospel reading was about Jesus curing a demonic possession at Capernaum. In the time when the Gospels were written people associated epileptic seizures with demonic possession, so it's possible that some kind of epilepsy was the condition that was actually cured. No one was cured this day in Carbondale.
